Stars' Fall Makeovers

Fall makeover madness is taking over, and this year’s theme is "new hair." It seems that every day another celebrity is taking shears to her long locks, hitting the dye bottle, cutting blunt bangs, or getting a pixie crop. From Scarlett Johansson to Ashlee Simpson, here are the stars who debuted big changes this season.

At Comic-Con this past summer, Scarlett Johansson revealed a messy bob that recalled Christina Applegate's "Samantha Who?" haircut. Since then, she's gone a bit shorter, debuting a Keira Knightley-esque crop this week in Madrid while promoting the Spanish retail store Mango.

Ashlee Simpson has never been one to bypass a Hollywood hair trend: she's been a blonde, a brunette, and a redhead. But, she's usually kept her locks super-long -- and stringy, thanks to not-very-subtle extensions. Not anymore! Last week the singer flaunted a new pixie 'do in a makeover photo posted by her hubby Pete Wentz on his Twitter page. Perhaps she felt the need for a change and got inspired by the pixies sported by Emma Watson and Michelle Williams?

Keira Knightley, one of the famous faces of Chanel, turned heads earlier this month when she debuted a sporty new bob at Paris Fashion Week. The chin-length layers frame the British actress' striking face, highlighting her large brown eyes and high cheekbones.

 After testing out a darker brunette 'do earlier this year, Katherine Heigl finally returned to her naturally blond roots last month while promoting her new rom-com "Life As We Know It." The actress went several shades lighter than we're used to, however, with streaks of shiny platinum. Still, it looks retro-glamorous -- like the Heigl we know and love (or love to hate).

Michelle Williams was one of the first stylish stars to jump on the pixie-hair bandwagon, and now she's taken it a step further by going fully platinum, showing off her lighter look last week at the premiere of "Blue Valentine" in London. Currently filming the biopic "My Week with Marilyn," Williams is sporting the bombshell's signature platinum locks to play the character of Marilyn MonroWhen

Kate Moss changes her hair, she makes headlines -- and then everyone else copies her, or so it seems. While other stars are opting for shorter cuts, Moss did the opposite by snipping bangs and layers that seem more "bedhead" than "bombshell." The British model creates trends by defying them, so we'll see how long it takes for other fashionistas to follow suit.

Alexis Bledel debuted freshly cut bangs at a benefit in New York on October 9. While a chic fringe is always en vogue, it's a new look for the former "Gilmore Girls" actress, which helps draw attention to Bledel's bright blue eyes, making them pop even more than they already did.

 Is it just us, or is almost everyone going blonder and shorter? Leave it to Nicole Richie to adopt this trend, thereby spawning legions of copycats who clipped her picture out of an Us Weekly and showed it to their stylists, saying, "Make me look like THIS."
